    Man in China tries to feed himself to tigers

    Asia News | South East Asia News | AsiaOne

    BEIJING - A man in China survived an unsuccessful attempt to feed himself to a pair of Bengal tigers and is being treated for depression, a Chinese newspaper reported Tuesday.

    According to the Chengdu Business Daily, Yang Jinhai, 27, climbed a tree and jumped into the tigers' enclosure on Sunday at the Chengdu Zoo in southwest China's Sichuan province.

    As stunned visitors watched, Yang - who is unemployed and suffers from mental health issues, according to his brother - "performed exaggerated movements" as he spent 20 minutes trying to tempt the tigers to eat him.

    "I asked them to bite me and let them eat my meat, and so I did not fight back," Yang told the paper.

    But while he was scratched and dragged by the back of his neck, the tigers declined to make a meal of him.

    Zoo staff tranquilised the animals so that they could rescue Yang, who sustained "16 minor wounds", the report said.

    Bad timing on crazy man's part. The tigers weren't hungry. They were just tenderizing him for a later meal.

    Wonder what happened to that saffer who was dragged off and torn to pieces but survived?
